A body lying on the ground is the perfect vehicle to travel in retrospect through the possible origins of a fateful event. The agonizing attempt to flee an imaginary reality captures a woman in a struggle that transcends bounders between life and death.
This multi-award-winning piece was the first composition for OTROLADO DC and is inspired by the sensitivity and virtuosity of the Cuban star dancer Thais Suárez Fernández.

A piece inspired by Igor Stravinsky´s homonymous composition and Charles Ferdinand´s script. It recreates the experiences of a soldier who, seduced by wealth, pawns his soul to the Devil in the figure of a woman. Two dancers are the protagonists of a story whose composition and excellent performance make this version something truly memorable.
A collaboration with the Lyceum Mozartiano de La Habana and Teatro de La Luna.

Did you ever have a dream that you could swear was real? What if you couldn’t wake up from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world … and the real one? I try to return to memory every ray of light, but I am imprisoned at the beginning of all endings, flooded with suspicion by the man in the mirror who looks at me.
